Totally captivated in 2007 by the live camera feed of the Hornby Island nesting Bald Eagles in B.C., I was drawn into birding and have never looked back. Thus begins my account of what I'm fortunate enough to discover each day and perhaps capture with my camera.

Scarborough Day with Ann, then a Cottage Hit-and-Run

Spent a wonderful day with Ann on her home turf, here are the highlights of the day, an abridged version from ~1000 images, though, as I really should be prepping for B.C. More pics to follow, perhaps, if I edit on the plane??

Screech Owl

Blue-headed Vireo- nice "specs"

 Our "Flicker- in- the- hole" (inside joke):

Northern Cardinal:

Foxy Momma w her four Kits, thanks for sharing, Ann!
(and yes, people, I know it says BIRDING blog above, but it's my Blog and I can do what I want to) 

You'd be yawning too if you had to do what she's doing!

Ann's Red-tailed Hawk on the nest; we're hoping her mate returns soon:

From Scarborough, I headed to the cottage, and was thrilled to find this Belted Kingfisher basking in the sun:

So over and out for me as I fall off my perch!
